David Frum: Al Gore wants to ‘take your car away.’


In an interview with right-wing FrontPage Magazine, President Bush’s former speechwriter, David Frum, addressed the question of how conservatives should frame global warming:

Look, Gore-type environmentalists have been wanting to take your car away for 60 years for whatever reason they can find. If it wasn’t global warming, it would be something else. This is what they have always wanted to do. They have wanted to take away your car. They don’t like suburbs. They want to stop the trend of American life. We are not trying to achieve anything other than a cleaner environment. That’s it. We have a more limited and more rational agenda than they do.
